2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Trader Joe’s, 11/18/12
Aroma: The nose is heavy on caramel, rather malty, and has some lighter earthy notes
Appearance: This one pours an amber color with a small beige head, and some light lace
Flavor: This one has a kind of unpleasant taste of macro-lager, caramel, and other of flavors
Palate: The body is medium, it feels a little too sticky, and almost cloying, with a pretty lively carbonation
I wasn’t a huge fan of this beer. The flavor just doesn’t work all that well in my opinion, and the quality is not really that high. Really not a winner in my opinion.

12 ounce bottle from Trader Joe’s in Kansas City. Pours amber with a small beige head. Mild aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit. Taste is caramel malt, bit of fruit, and a bit of grass. Kind of boring, but drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Lazy Dog, Erie. Pours amber, thin white head. Aroma is a little boring, a brief nose of red apple, not much else. Think it is mainly the pint glass it was served in, because I am picking up a whiff of bar sanitizer. Body is light, hints of caramel, sugar, malt, and mild bitterness. Was okay.

12oz bottle from Trader Joe’s in Tallahassee. Amber pour, light tan head. Aroma is toasty, caramel, sweet, brown sugar. Tastes are caramel malt, nutty, little pine, tea. Pretty decent - certainly compared to some of the other random TJ’s brews I’ve tried lately.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle by Fajry.many thanks! Malty and fruity aroma reminding me of marmalade. Taste of bitter fruit and malt. Aroma still of dark chocolate and roasted malt a bit. Overall not bad, but the finish somehow is a blend of bitterness and dark chocolate.
